A legal notice has been sent to jewellery brand Agni for illegally
using the unreleased song, Chamak Challo, from Shahrukh Khan's next
film Ra.One at the recently held India International
Jewellery Week (IIJW) 2011.
'Chamak Chalo' sung by international singer Akon and picturised
on the leading lady Kareena Kapoor, has already been leaked online
a few months ago. The brand played the song while showcasing their
creations on the fourth day of IIJW held last week in Mumbai. While
the song was played in the background, actress Amrita Rao along
with other leading models walked the ramp showcasing the jewellery
T-Series, who own the music rights of Ra.One have sent
a legal notice to Agni, asking for a compensation of R 2 crore.
Bhushan Kumar, the head honcho of the music label confirms the news
to Mid Day, "Yes, we have sent a legal notice to Agni for using our
unreleased song without prior permission. It is an illegal thing to
do. We are moving court and suing them for about R 2 crore. One
needs to get a license to use any song for a show. However, for an
unreleased song you cannot even obtain a license."
